5:00 pm
announcer ] 4 out of 5 dentists confirmed these pro-health products helped maintain a professional clean. my daughter inspired me to make a change. crest pro-health really brought my mouth to the next level. starts next. >> are we trying that hard to keep ebola out? and should the government impose a travel band? can republicans take control of the senate or blow it? they are 25 miles from baghdad. is isis capable of taking iraq's capitol. and houston mayor pastor's sermons are fair game. i say game on. ♪ >> good evening, and i good evening, i'm mike huckabee, thanks for watching tonight. should pastors turn over their
5:01 pm
sermon and their sermon notes over to church members. sure it happens in china and ir iran. but should americans just shut up when their freedom of religious is directly threatened. just when you thought that someone in government -- irs scandals and spying on reporters, clelting on e-mails and phone records, forcing pastors do speak on the slaughter of innocent children, we see a stunning example of reckless abuse of power. >> houston, we have a problem. >> yes, we have a problem and it's in houston. an niece parker, the openly lesbian mayor of houston passed -- preference to transgender people who claim who identify with the opposite jechbder.
5:02 pm
didn't want to send their -- eventually they collected enough signatures to put the measure up for a vote before the people. a heavy handed mayor and city attorney declared that there weren't enough valid signatures and citizecitizen -- s&p the -- starnes of fox news.com broke this story and the storm came down. be surprised that pastor sermon material had been requested. it said offensive the five pastors use pulpits for politics, their sermons are fair game. instructions given on filling out anti-hero pe oo petition, t makes it clear to me that she not only knew but she approved.
5:03 pm
we invited her on the show tonight but she declined. i'm not sure if i blame her. i ma'am, have you ever read the united states constitution? i mean ever, are you familiar with the first amendment? do you believe that the american form of government was to trample the most fuchkdmental rights of the citizens so it can silence the votes and -- the houston case reminds us of how rapidly our country is being taken over by despots who will perform genocide to people who cling to their bibles. the houston mayor and her ilk, like mayors in chicago and boston, who tried to prevent businesses opening in their cities because the business owners were bible believing christians, she needs to apologize and start respecting
5:04 pm
all citizens or at least have the integrity to resign. they shouldn't expect taxpayers to fund hate filled gestapo like actions to openly shut down the free exercise of religion and then attempt to establish a religion of godless sectarianism. because good christians don't vote and don't care. of the 80 million self-identified evangelicals in america, half aren't even registered to vote and about half of them vote in a presidential election year election and only half of those vote in a midterm election like this year. so i've got an idea. if she wants some sermons, here's my suggestion, i would like to ask every pastor in america, not just the ones in houston, i would like to ask
5:05 pm
every pastor in america send her your sermons, obviously she could use a few. if you're a pastor, send them to her. and here's another thought, everybody watching the show, ought to send her a bible. that's right, everybody, her address is on the screen. i hope she gets thousands and thousands after sermons and bibles. john glen is the pastor of the vietnamese pastor of the church in houston, he came to america to escape a communist government who tried to control who and how he worships. he's one of the pastors who dry -- an alliance of freedom attorneys. and pastor wen, i want to start with you, because you escaped the tierny in vietnam. one of the boat people who got out of that country when you )!u life. when you came to america, did
5:06 pm
you ever think that the government of the united states, acting through one of its mayors would ask you to cough up your sermons so they could approve them? >> never would i have thought this would happen to us here in america. >> you must be a little bit disconcerted that this has been required of you or requested of you, do you plan to give your sermons to the mayor of houston. >> she can have my sermon, but not my subpoena. my sermon is to the people watching in vietnam and other parts of the world, it's made public. but to the man that i turn in my sermon and communication correspondent, it's violates what this nation is for, it's freedom of speech and freedom of
5:07 pm
religion. >> when you got your subpoena, what was your reaction to it? >> it shocked me at first, by i know this was just a tactic to silence the votes of the -- because i feel like they want to send us a message that you speak up and you pay. >> eric, let me bring you into the conversation, you're the leede attorney that now defending these five pastors. alliance defending freedom, your organization deals with issues like this. i'll be honest with you, i have never seen anything like this blatant. is this a sermon for what you do? >> this is an unprecedented attack on the religious liberties of pastors. i was shocked to see the amount and the breath of what the city was can be from heads pastors,
5:08 pm
17 different categories of communications, including their speeches and sermons and also concerning private communications of clergy members, which could be covered by the clergy confidentiality statute. i was floored when i heard about these subpoenas. >> eric, what she fweet tweeted out specifically said sermons, i think it was yesterday or sometime today she has amended and said well not their sermons but their speeches, i'm trying to determine what's the difference. >> the only thing the city did was remove the word sermons from the subpoena. it literally still concernings different categories of communications including any and all communications on the petition, any and all communications about homosexuality, about jechgender
5:09 pm
identity and it still includes the private communications between pastors and their church members. the city of houston doesn't get it, it appears they have never read the first amendment as you said and they don't seem to understand that when you go after pastors like this, you're running rough shod over the first amendment. >> i cannot imagine that there's any court in the land, lower or appellate or the supreme court that could side with the city of houston and what they have requested whether it's in the guise of the discovery phase or not. tell us what you x is going to happen over the next few weeks and months of this case. >> i think you other exactly right. the important point to know that these pastors that were subpoenaed, all they did was oppose this ordinance that the city had passed and they encouraged people to sign this petition, essentially they were exercising their constitutional rights to free speech. we're representing all five of the pastors and we file a motion
5:10 pm
to quash these subpoenas. >> it occurs to me that it may be that this one mayor of houston texas has done something that hundreds of thousands of pastors have not been able to do is and that's to wake up their congregation and make them realize that -- get up out of their slumber and realize that if we don't get up and stand up and do something to protect our freedoms we will lose it. that's why i'm hoping that somebody will send a bible to the mayor and that all the pastors will send her their sermons and give her a pile of sermons to wade through. thank you for joining us. >> what do you think about what's happening to the pastors in loohouston?

5:15 pm
for ebola czar ron klain, a political operative, not somebody affiliated that i know of for health care, what happened to the appointment of this particular individual as the czar? >> can i say the czar is bizarre? the governor, for two weeks, i've been saying the president needs a point person, the president needs a general in this war against this virus, because we are able to do that, we need someone who can put through athe layers of bureaucracy and we have seen that now in all the layiers of -- recently energy in congress, and you ask who's in charge and no one sitting at that wans table is able to tell you. we need someone in charge, i don't know mr. klain, i will -- you will have to defer to other people who have perhaps known

5:18 pm
the president says it would be worse if we put the travel ban in place, i have tried to work through that mem mentally why it's better to let people travel in and out of those areas. does that make sense to you as a congressman and a doctor? >> the logic makes no sense and when it was people tried to justify to the committee hearing, it made no sense. look, we could do a lot to help those country where is the disease is unchecked. we are doing a lot, we can send servicemen over there. including our country and i think that is the only logical thing to do, an american citizen who is in one of those countries, who needs to travel back here, okay, i get that,

countries in the same box. they both have -- the shiia iranian influence in arab iraq and syria and in lebanon. in syria, of course, they want the government in baghdad, they want to take that out of shiia control. the second thing with the turks will degrade or completely get rid of the syrian kurds and the turkish kurds. but if i was the president, what i would say is here's our policy, our policy would guarantee the survival of the iraqi kurds, they're democratic, they alike with us, they're pro u.s. and their strategic location and we will guarantee their survival. you arabs, you turks and you
